    Default my 88 jetta gli

    bought the car to be a dd/stunt project.. just something to ride round in and look fresh.. nothing flashy just classy!!!

    bought the car for 1400 bucks from a guy who happen to ive in japan but the car was still in the states..



    the very next day i threw some coilovers i bought off a guy locally because im not really into offroading



    the next morning i took a ride and picked up some bbs rm's that i had on my vw caddy truck and slapped them on the jetta



    since then ive swapped the front end with a single round golf front end and also refinished the rm's i put 3.5 inch lips for the rears and 2.0 inch lips for the fronts.. got them powdercoated white as well with all new chrome bolts



    and this is where im at today.. i plan on doing a 2.0 turbo swap some rare bits and peices on the exterior swaping the recaro interior for brown tweed interior and also putting a little camber in the rear to go lower.. more pics to come as i build this baby..






    thanks for checkin this out!!!!

    Perfect example of what wheels and a drop can do for a car.
